This neighborhood house opened as the Plaza Theatre, and was operating prior to 1925 It had closed by 1931, but reopened in 1935 when it was part of the Schine Circuit Inc. As the neighborhood declined, the auditorium space became filled with a convenience store.

Recently the Plaza Theatre has been renovated and returned to use as a theatre. It is now known as the Dazzle Center for the Performing Arts. It sees use as a small for rent space available for amateur performances and exhibits. The small auditorium is lined with Ionic pilasters, which apparently are original to the interior.

Architect was Michael DeAngelis. Seating was originally 500. Architectural style is actually Italian Renaissance. Was owned in the late ‘20s by Major L. J. Waterbury, who also owned the Staley in Rochester.
